​​​AUSTIN – The Texas Historical Commission (THC) has launched DowntownTX.org, a web application designed to connect potential investors to development opportunities in Texas’ historic downtowns.

DowntownTX.org is an online building inventory for Texas downtowns featuring historic property listings.

The website has two map-based user interfaces—one for the public, the other administrative purposes.

The public interface promotes investment opportunities and historic building information, highlights incentives, provides a direct connection to the correct local contacts, and clarifies the local development process.

A user-friendly design makes it easy to scan the entire state and provides the ability to search parameters no other online real estate search tool offers. For example, properties can be filtered by National Register designation to direct interested historic real estate developers to properties eligible for the state and federal historic tax incentive programs.

The administrative interface displays a tailored dashboard, allowing each community to customize their homepage to manage building and business data internally.

About 20 cities are currently online. More will be added throughout the year.

The project was made possible by the Still Water Foundation, the THC’s Certified Local Government program, and the Friends of the THC.
